Unsolved Mysteries kids were both playing with same siblings before vanishing
In 1989 two toddlers went missing from the same spot – but three months apart.
The case is explored in the newest season of Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix.
Two-year-old Christopher Dansby vanished from a New York City playground in May, and three months later Shane Walker, who was 19 months old, went missing from the same playground.
Although the two children didn’t know each other, there are several theories that suggest that the two disappearances are linked.
As well as the children vanishing from the same spot, there is also the fact that they were seen playing with the same two children.
On May 18 1989, Allison Dansby and her son Christopher went to the Martin Luther King Jr Towers playground in Harlem.
While she went to a nearby shop, she left the toddler at the playground under the supervision of his grandmother.
When the mother returned, Christopher had vanished.
But according to the grandmother, the toddler had been playing with a red ball and an older girl and boy.

Three months later, on August 10, Rosa Glover and her one-year-old son Shane came to the same playground.
An older girl and boy approached Shane’s mother to ask if they could play with him on the swings.
She agreed, and sat down on a nearby bench. A man eventually sat down next to Rosa and started a conversation.
When she turned to look at Shane, he was gone. A few moments later the girl and boy appeared through a hole in the fence, telling Rosa they didn't see where he went.

Police questioned the 10-year-old girl and her five-year-old brother, but they couldn’t recall seeing anyone take the boys from the playground.
Investigators also checked with the parents’ of the children, but they didn’t find any leads.
The man who sat down next to Rosa was also questioned by authorities, but ruled out as a suspect.
Deputy Chief Ronald Fenrich, head of Manhattan detectives, said: “No one that we have found yet has seen anybody with the child, taking the child by hand, carrying it, leading it, taking it through a fence, or leaving the playground.”
